Summer Transition to BU Series

As a new BU student, parent or supporter, you've probably got questions you’re eager to get answered. And we’re here to help! In the Office of New Student Orientation, we know there's a lot of information to process prior to the start of classes. That’s why we created the Summer Transition to BU Series to help break down important information for you in a much easier and interactive way!

The series is designed to introduce you to a variety of areas on campus, connect you to the “experts” in those areas through live events and help make your transition into the Husky family an easy one!

Throughout the summer, the Office of New Student Orientation will be sending you emails containing videos you can watch conveniently online. All you have to do is check your email! After each video, there will be a live event where you can interact with that week’s “expert” and ask any questions you might have!

Summer Transition



On Oct. 9, 1933, the student body of the Bloomsburg State Teachers College voted nearly unanimously in favor of adopting the husky as the school's first official mascot. Proposed by art professor and avid husky trainer George J. Keller as the ideal mascot because of his noble qualities, an actual husky donated by Keller made his first appearance at a pep rally on Oct. 13. Named Roongo after a combination of maroon and gold.
